But I was hooked on his words and can still remember some of my favorites ...
Ickle Me, Pickle Me, Tickle Me Too
"Ickle Me, Pickle Me, Tickle Me too,
Went for a ride in a flying shoe ..."
"My beard grows to my toes,
I never wears no clothes,
I wraps my hair,
Around my bare,
And down the road I goes."
"Teddy said it was a hat,
So I put it on.
Now Dad is saying, "Where the heck's
the toilet plunger gone?"
Reading back through his books with my kids ...
I'm still not sure about that guy! Still childlike, silly, creepy and goofy, but now I see how he appealed to the kids and the adults alike and managed to entertain us all and even educate us a little. And give us all a good chuckle/shudder/snort!
One poem in particular, has truly stuck with me and I find myself repeating it back to myself periodically.
